Drop into Compustore opposite the Shelbourne and have a closer look so! Really blow your head off! :-)
My post here, and the other gareth posts are about something in computing, to do with flexibility - the common PC is a very flexible beast. And systems like the MAC which are one step away from being a sealed unit like a Playstation or something.
My point is that, sealed boxes, can be designed to look a lot better - than flexible engineering concepts like the common PC. If you were to put a window on most PCs, the insides would not look very pretty at all.
It strikes me too, that Bauhaus and 'God is in the details', approach in architecture may not be the most flexible, even though the eventual package might look very spectacular. The average joe house that is built today, is a very flexible, but nonetheless messy kind of a package. It allows you to create a range of products in a varied price range.
What architects would normally aspire to is, to have a certain size of budget and just go for something really, really classic looking. But you possibly will not be able to adjust it, copy it or imitate it, as you do bog standard design templates, such as the common PC.
